Bio

I spent the majority of my career at a level one academic trauma center in FL before relocating to NC. I am passionate about advocating for my profession and specialty through education, evidence-informed practice, and building collaborative opportunities to provide the most effective treatments to those I serve. My areas of interest are complex traumatic injuries of the upper extremity and athletes of all levels. I enjoy being active with my family outdoors, traveling, and experiencing living in a state with great basketball.
